Algiers is a better than average movie from the 1930s. Set in French controlled Algeria, the movie depicts life in the part of the Algerian city of Algiers known as the Kasbah. Kasbah is home to Indians (Gypsy's or Egyptians), Chinese, blacks, Hebrews and is bothersome to the French who are searching for a person of interest. They have a difficult time apprehending the fugitive (Charles Boyer) who uses the Kasbah to avoid capture. A woman (Hedy Lamarr) interest of the fugitive (Charles Boyer), warns him to stay within the Kasbah. She (Hedy Lamarr) knows the French are on the prowl for him. He uses the Kasbah labyrinth to his advantage which keeps the French police guessing to his whereabouts.
